Bug#1751: corrupt man page for dc
I should have noted that:
-- I was also using man-2.3.10-2, and
-- when I ran mandb, I got no other error messages than the one
associated with dc.
Other than the message about dc, running mandb -c had (for me) the
desired beneficial effect of eliminating an error message I kept
getting from 'apropos' after I'd manually placed some pages in
